I am using one function call in php from smf that is SSI that allows me to show th elast messages from the forum in another page.

How can this be used with siverstripe ?

Edit your /mysite/code/Page.php (or if you've made your own page class edit that).

On the top line after the opening PHP tag include SSI.php
for example:


Then before the final } add this:

function Content()
$content = $this->Content;
$content = str_replace('[[recentPosts]]', ssi_recentPosts(), $content);
return $content;

Then add [[recentPosts]] somewhere on your content, and you should get the function recentPosts returned. Of course you can name it something else and call a different function.

If you're interested my Page.php looks like this:

If you get stuck let me know.
